Deborah Sussman Loves Los Angeles! is an exhibition dedicated to the groundbreaking environmental graphic design of Deborah Sussman, who has worked at the interface of graphic design and the built environment for more than 60 years. She has created striking visual imagery and devised its imaginative application for architectural and public spaces both permanent and temporary. This is the first retrospective of her early work, including projects completed while she was at the Eames Office up to the 1984 Olympics. The exhibition is curated and organized by Catherine Gudis, Barbara Bestor, Thomas Kracauer, and Shannon Starkey. From her years with the Eames Studio in the 1950s and 1960s, her partnership with Paul Prejza and the incorporation of Sussman/Prejza in 1980, to the creation of the iconic identity and “pop-up” architecture for the 1984 LA Olympics, Deborah Sussman has helped shape the visual landscape of Los Angeles and define the field of environmental graphic design. Opening Reception: December 12, 2013, 6-9 pm WUHO Gallery 6518 Hollywood Blvd Los Angeles, CA 90028 Presented by the Los Angeles Forum for Architecture and Urban Design See also this (SUCCESSFUL) related Kickstarter campaign: Deborah Sussman Loves Los Angeles!
